Bokeh -- Oly 12-40 f/2.8 vs. Oly 45 f/1.8

When taking pictures of family in front of a Christmas tree, my Oly 12-40 f/2.8 lens doesn't blur the ornaments as much as I'd like, even at 40mm and f/2.8.  Would I see an improvement in bokeh with the Oly 45 f/1.8?  Also, while I can't complain about IQ, would the 45 f/1.8 be any sharper?  Camera is an Oly EM-5 Mark II.
